THE GREAT SHAKESPEARE RIDE embraces cyclists of all abilities. Whether you are a budding Bradley Wiggins or have only just taken the stabilizers off your bike, there is a route here to suit you.
The 100 MILE SPORTIVE is a beautiful route, which will certainly challenge you. We may not have the alpine ascents of the Grand Tours, but we do challenge you on a continually undulating route, 5 major climbs and a total ascent which easily matches the infamous Dragon Ride and similar events.
The 100 KM CHALLENGE RIDE is a picturesque undulating route which is really challenging but achievable, think of it as a small step towards the 100 mile route you’ll no doubt be entering next year!
The FRIENDLY 40, a lovely ride on safe, quiet rural roads is shorter and flatter than our more challenging routes. Coupled with the masses of support we have in place, this is really suitable to those new to cycling and cycling events.
2017 will see us starting at the fantastic four star Walton Hall Hotel & Spa where you will be able to take advantage of the bar area, post ride food and a well deserved massage. Parking is free.
The Great Shakespeare Ride is in aid of THE SHAKESPEARE HOSPICE, a charity providing care and support to adults, children, young people and their families. Your entry fee and any sponsorship raised will have an impact on the life of someone affected by a life limiting illness.
